  • Anyone else hand feed crickets to their Cresteds?

    Old faithful loves them so much. She loves when I hand feed her. My orange female also will eat crickets from my hand.

    I have a few that get so excited at mealtime that they will take the offering (crickets or roaches) AND your hand sometimes too

      War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. A man who is too afraid to fight for what he lives for is the ugliest of all things-some old war dude whose name I forgot( i think he was like a general)

          :?: Do you all think that hand-feeding or switching them to a small container w/ crickets will make them too lazy to hunt them after a while :?: Just wondering...

              The first time I dusted crix with CGD I sprayed them very lightly with water first so the diet would stick better but I didn't think about the negative effects. Anyway the diet formed a paste and suffocated them within seconds. I didn't want to let 2 dozen crickets go to waste with hungry geckos so I tied a piece of thread around the back leg of each cricket and fed them off one at a time. The geckos would see the swinging bug and bite at it and miss and bite again.......I haven't had that much fun since :wink: .
